Democrats can always be counted on to violate their own rules, which was repeatedly seen over the last year with blue state governors breaking their own COVID restrictions. However, Democrats exhibit the most hypocrisy is when it comes to race and diversity.
Liberal politicians, the media, and celebrities present themselves as defenders against racism when it comes to black people, but it’s all a big cynical scam to dupe people of color into believing that the Democrats truly care about them (except when they need their votes at election time)
A perfect example of such hypocrisy is Senator Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island.
Whitehouse belongs to a private club that still embraces the “values” of Jim Crow laws and the type of disgusting segregation that led to separate drinking fountains before the civil rights era.
Whitehouse, who like Joe Biden, never misses an opportunity to portray himself as a champion of all black people, was put on the spot over the double standards of belonging to Bailey’s Beach Club, a racist resort in tony Newport that was founded in the 1890s, a time when there were still victims of slavery who were alive.
On Friday, a local Providence news outlet caught up with Whitehouse and put him on the spot over his membership in the exclusive club that is as white as the Ku Klux Klan.

When questioned by a reporter for GoLocal Providence about previous “concerns” that he voiced over the club’s blatant discrimination, Whitehouse was clearly rattled.
The reporter asked; “Back in 2017, you had expressed concerns about the membership of the all-white Bailey’s Beach Club, said you’d hoped that it would become more diverse,” she said, “Now your family’s been members, your wife is a shareholder, has there been any traction in that? Are there any minority members of the club now?”
Whitehouse stammered; “I think, uh, the people who are running the place are still working on that and I’m sorry it hasn’t happened yet.”
Then as he was trying to slither away, the reporter hit him with a follow-up question; “Do you have concerns that in 2021, I mean obviously, it’s been four years, you have remarks on the floor following the deaths of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd, saying, hoping to root out systemic racism in the country,” she said, “Your thoughts on an elite, all-white, wealthy club, again in this day and age, you know, should these clubs continue to exist?”
The Democrat responded; “it’s a long tradition in Rhode Island and there are many of them, uh, and we just need to make our way through the issues, thank you.” Said Whitehouse as he scurried away.
Whitehouse spent years railing against former President Trump, who he repeatedly accused of being a racist and for enabling systemic racism.
When cities were on fire after the death of George Floyd, the senator issued a statement saying:
“Our country is at a crossroads. A nation reeling from a pandemic and an economic catastrophe that have disproportionately affected communities of color is mourning the tragic deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and so many others. All the while, President Trump is toiling to deepen the fault lines in American life,” he said.
Then there is the dinner party that was hosted last week by diversity queen Kamala Harris at her residence in the Naval Observatory; a gathering that was only slightly less diverse than Sen. Whitehouse’s elite “no blacks allowed” beach club.

Some pointed out the terrible optics of the nearly wall-to-wall whiteness of the veep’s dinner bash.
Kamala had a dinner party for women Of the Senate. The blackest people in the room were the maid and butler. Looked like a scene out of Gone With The Wind. She could’ve invited the women of the CBC but it wouldn’t make her feel important enough. These are your heroes.

Hypocrisy is truly the coin of the realm in the Democratic party and unfortunately, too many black voters continue to fall for their self-appointed liberators from “white supremacy” despite ample evidence that they are being conned.
